Drought Care

Since 2018, The a2 Milk Company has made lump sum payments directly to a2 MilkTM farming families to help manage the impact of the drought.

 These are some of their stories.

a2 Milk™ and Landcare

Four a2 Milk™ farmers will be awarded funding for projects through the a2 Milk™ Landcare grants program. This will help them respond to challenges and enhance the sustainability of their operations.

The funding will help farmers undertake projects focused on a variety of initiatives, such as increased use of solar power, implementation of technology to reduce energy consumption, revegetation to reduce soil erosion and improve water quality, and the recycling of waste water.

Our farmers

At The a2 Milk Company we truly value the efforts of our dairy farmers who are all long term partners. We haven’t reduced milk payments to our farmers and we’ll continue to pay them a premium for supply of a2 Milk™.
